More or less. The real super-duper point of no return is when you go to rescue the kidnapped crew; however, there is a somewhat underhanded point of no return with the Reaper IFF mission. If you do that particular mission, an unseen timer starts and you can only do one more mission before the crew is taken. As such, it is recommended to do everything you want to do before that mission because if you don't go to rescue the crew ASAP, you will lose half of them.

When does Legion come into play?

Your team gets Legion during the Reaper IFF mission.

And this is where the secret timer comes into play. Basically, the one mission grace period that you have after the IFF mission is there so that you can do Legion's loyalty mission and then go right into the endgame.

Here's some good stuff about Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3!

And also, just finished my second play through and, after much toil, I finished the game with every single solitary upgrade! Woo woo!

so i picked up the Overlord DLC yesterday and it's actually pretty good. not to go into it very much but the AI will piss you off then make you very very sad at the end if you do the paragon ending.

If anyone has yet to play the first Mass Effect and did not buy it for $5 off Steam yesterday, I know longer wish to know you.

EDIT:
That was a really, really good DLC! I felt pretty sad at the end when I saw David hooked up the to the VI control, with his eyes pried open and tubes in this mouth, repeating the same thing over and over.

And I got a good chuckle when the ME1 elevator music kicked on in the Geth Ship, and at the damaged security mech at the geothermal plant

Instead of doing a whole review, I'll just be lazy and say: 8.5/10, worth the price!

My main gripe was that your squad mates don't say anything again, but I guess its pretty unlikely to get each voice actor back for a single DLC.

Man, despite my Camp Comandant Shepard being desicively Renegade when I saw David all wired up like that I was slamming down the Paragon option. Awesome DLC.
